About Volume Weighted Average Price

VWAP means Volume-Weighted Average Price. This is theĀ average price of a stock weighted by the total trading volume. The VWAP is used to calculate the average price of a stock over a period of time. So what?

Well, let’s say you’re into shitcoin. They talk about the average price they are in. Meaning are they making money with the volatile ass prices?

Now, what about M&A transactions?

Well, you have institutional investors and they want to make money. So if they are in at VWAP of $10 and the deal is for $8, well, they’re not going to be happy with the 20% loss are they?

Now if you do that for all you major investors you will know what price range you need to get them interested.

You’ll likely do a ‘premiums paid analysis’ to figure out the kind of price range you need to offer above the undisturbed and/or current price to get investors interested based on their VWAP.

Why these slides are made

I only ever had to do this analysis once when I was doing an IPO. This falls into ECM territory. If you can explain VWAP better, help me out šŸ˜‰

Comments on making these slides

It’s a fairly simple concept. You pull out the data from Bloomberg etc. You use an excel template (You can get a free VWAP Calculator here) and it churns out the data. From there you can do a shareholder analysis etc, and oh joy.
